(Countless Americans and illegal migrants live in tent cities and in abandoned warehouses around the United States. They lack toilets, clean water and heat. We can expect millions more as we import millions of third world refugees. We cannot keep up with the numbers nor can we provide jobs.) Photography by Joakim Eskildsen
(Millions of poverty stricken Americans live in trailers. Two of Adell White Dog Johnson's grandchildren sleep in their strollers near their family's burned-down trailer in Eagle Butte, S.D. Adell, 45, had complained about the wiring the previous week. No one was hurt in the fire, but her family lost everything they had, including a computer they had recently bought. Adell, who also lost her previous trailer to an electrical fire, makes less than minimum wage as a dishwasher at a local restaurant.
FEMA sells Native Americans condemned trailers which are dangerous to live in. Residents also have little incentive to buy their own home, since it disqualifies them from receiving general assistance. The system on the reservation, created in part by the Federal Government, has created a dependent society, the antithesis of Native Americans’ desire to be a self-reliant and sovereign nation.)

Today, yet another U.S. Congress not only huddles to give 20 million illegal aliens instant citizenship, they may include adding another one million immigrants to the 1.2 million that already legally migrate into the USA annually.

They prove the following statement: “The First Basic Law of Human Stupidity asserts without ambiguity: always and inevitably everyone underestimates the number of stupid individuals in circulation. At first, the statement sounds trivial. Closer scrutiny reveals its veracity. No matter how high are one's estimates of human stupidity, one is repeatedly startled by the fact that: people whom one had once judged rational and intelligent turn out to be unashamedly stupid. Additionally, day after day, with unceasing monotony, one is harassed in one's activities by stupid individuals who appear suddenly and unexpectedly in the most inconvenient places and at the most improbable moments.” (Source: Carlo M. Cipolla, Professor of Economics, UC Berkeley)
Economist Kenneth Boulding said, “Anyone who believes in indefinite growth on a physically finite planet, is either mad or an economist.”
At the end of his book, Hartman offers 13 methods for you to take action. You must remember that a constitutional republic demands citizen participation. We must take action to make sure those congressional critters take the right action. Our destiny is not a matter of chance, it’s a matter of our choosing to act and fulfill a positive outcome. You cannot wait for your future to unfold positively; you must make it a positive future for yourself and your fellow creatures that share this planet with you.
